Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to assess the storability of groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) seed lots based on vigour tests during 2015-16. Nineteen seed lots with varying vigour levels based on different germination percentages were taken and replicated four times. The results indicated that seeds with higher vigour were able to retain the vigour for longer period (at the end of storage period of six months). The vigorous lots recorded higher quality parameters at the end of storage period. The electrical conductivity of seed lots increased with storage period however, the vigorous lots had lower EC values and visa versa for low vigorous lots. The root length, shoot length, seedling dry weight, protein content and oil content in general showed a declining trend. Lipase enzyme activity increased with passage of storage period.
